Tow Package Recommendation for 2018 Subaru Forester  


I have a 2018 Subaru Forester, what all do I need to tow a trailer?


Expert Reply:

The first thing you need to tow a trailer with your 2018 Subaru Forester is a trailer hitch. For that the best option is the Draw Tite hitch part # 76182 because it has the best towing capacities and is mostly hidden. Unlike other hitches this hitch only has the hitch opening visible underneath it.

For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118467 which is a confirmed fit and our most reliable option we have for your vehicle. I attached an install video for this on a 2018 Forester just like yours for you to check out.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
